iPhone 5 Torture Tests (VIDEO)

iPhone 5 Torture Tests (VIDEO)

You would never dream of treating your new iPhone 5 with anything but loving respect and care. But thank Jobs there are some among us that are willing to buy a brand new iPhone and try to smash the crap out of it! Let’s take a look at a few videos, shall we?

The first, and sweetest torture test is performed by Android Authority. They tested the new iPhone 5 for durability vs. it’s biggest competitor, the Samsung Galaxy S III. Sadly for Samsung fans, their big guy doesn’t fare as well as the iPhone 5. Let’s sit quietly and watch…

Then the happy folks at iFixYouri.com ran another drop test…

I clenched a bit every time I heard the iPhone 5 hit the floor. GAH! Stood up well, though didn’t it?

Both of these videos show that the iPhone 5 is actually very durable, and can take a punch. No one is suggesting you toss it around like frisbee, or use it as a hockey puck, but for day-to-day dangers, it looks like this little puppy is going to stand up OK.

I’m still waiting for someone to run the Smith and Wesson torture test on an iPhone 5… Any volunteers?

    In the 1st video he throws the GS3 down and does not throw the iPhone.

    1. Tom K says:

      yeah maybe but he dropped the iPhone 3 times… did he with the S3? No! And that was the phone with the greater damage. So… 😀

      1. Aidan Taylor says:

        It had greater damage from being threw down meaning it was an unfair test, that video is complete shit just go and watch other GS3 drop tests..

  2. SONNYSPAK says:

    bullshit. he threw the s3 out of his pocket. he took it up higher at chest height. and threw it out at the ear height. Guys if you’re going to do a drop test, don’t get an apple fanboy to do it.

    1. Chris says:

      He did the same thing with both phones. Actually, he flung the iPhone even more. Wow, some serious butt-hurt Fandroids here.

      1. Aidan Taylor says:

        And what gives you the right to call us butt-hurt fandroids, insulting us for our opinion? Are you like 5? And no he did not fling the iPhone more then the GS3 so you sir are a “butt-hurt applenerd”

        And before you start calling us fandroids again, i dont own an android phone i own a blackberry; yeah take that.

        1. Daisy says:

          I’m so sorry, you’re right the blackberry is punishment enough. Don’t need to compound the butthurt

    2. The guy testing with a channel called android authority is an apple fanboy????

      1. Aidan Taylor says:

        Why does channel name mater? He could be a fanboy who likes to break androids and makes a channel about it.

        1. Daisy says:

          Gee I don’t know. People usually want something descriptive so people will know what their show is themed around.

    3. Lach says:

      ??? Are you kidding!? He dropped it from above his head and it still didn’t break! He didn’t even bother with the Samsung, it was DONE!

  3. Adam says:

    These Tests are so dumb! I mean I laughed when the only way he could break a perfectly good device was to literally throw it at the ground. Where is the test in that? What normal person is going to do that? If you want break the phone, just break it. Don’t play around, Just do what this guy did and throw it at a brick wall or something. No Test Required!
